Novus crash out of Minor sports

There are about 32,000 Rotary Clubs in the world. To enable collaboration, neighbouring clubs are assigned to areas, districts and regions. To foster good relations they compete against one another in ‘minor sports.’

They always travel in hope — the hope that they don’t win so many knock-out matches that they have to travel further and further from home!

There was no cheating when eight members of Leicester Novus travelled to Lincolnshire to take on Grantham Sunrise in games of golf putting, Jenga, Downfall, Connect 4, and ‘Higher or Lower’.

The hosts won, fair and square, before President Pradeep Popat thanked President Lez Jones and his games makers, led by Debbie Wylie for a well-run event which all agreed was fun.

The Leicester losers left wishing their hosts safe journeys through the next rounds of the competition.
